      Hello tolari,

      If you are CBetting the flop & then even 2nd barreling the turn then it means we also have to 3rd barrel the river to get rid of TT/JJ/Qx hands or whatsoever. His calling range there will be very capped, maybe something like KQ and stronger.

      But once again depends a lot on the opponent and if he is a station maybe even looser. In those spots I tend to rather Check behind the turn cause the K could also improve some part of his range even as KQ and to avoid such a spot where we actually have to ship to get rid of Qx.

      Best Regards.
